Matt Le Blanc – licence to thrill

Top Gear fans absolutely loved Matt LeBlanc's transformation into James Bond

Top Gear America will be hosted by actor/competitive vehicle racer William Fichtner (Mom, Prison Break), drag racer Antron Brown and British automotive journalist Tom "Wookie" Ford (Mud, Sweat and Gears).

Top Gear's American cousinn will once more rev its engines across the pond.

The eight, hour-long episodes of the car-themed docu-series are expected to start airing on BBC America later this year. Each week will feature a different celebrity who will compete for top honor on the leader board at the new Top Gear studio and track, Speed Vegas. They will even have their own Stig, of course.

It'll go up against Amazon-produced The Grand Trip, starring former Top Gear UK hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond.

Prior to this latest version, USA versions of "Top Gear" have been hit or miss.

Top Gear USA, the franchise's previous America-themed spinoff, aired for five seasons on History before it was cancelled in June. That iteration of the show was hosted by comedian Adam Ferrara, Rallycross driver Tanner Foust, and NASCAR on NBC host Rutledge Wood. In 2005, for example, the Discovery Channel filmed a pilot for an American version of Top Gear that was never picked up.

The newest series of Top Gear UK is now airing on BBC 2.

With a nod to its United Kingdom roots, the reimagined US spin-off of Top Gear will appear on BBC America with three new presenters later this year. But it's tough when you have that level of scrutiny that the show had last season.
